Wells expands offering with 301 new parts

Posted on January 3, 2014

Wells Vehicle Electronics, a brand of UCI-FRAM Group, has added 301 new parts to its portfolio of original equipment-quality replacement components for domestic and foreign nameplate applications.

The new parts, which together cover an estimated 222 million registered vehicles, bring to nearly 800 the total number of new Wells SKUs introduced during the past three months.

The latest expansion of the Wells line includes 96 new sensors, 65 additional emissions components and 61 replacement switches, among other OE-quality parts. The company in October, 2013, introduced 488 additional parts with total coverage of more than 375 million vehicles.

“We view our role as a business partner to not only design and manufacture products that add confidence to every repair, but also to help ensure that our customers have all of the vehicle electronics solutions they need for consistent, aggressive growth,” says John Zochert, director of marketing and product management for Wells.

“By choosing Wells, professional technicians can be certain they will have the right parts available when and where they need them.”

In addition to components that match OE fit, form and function, Wells says it offers a broad line of “better-than-OE” parts featuring enhanced designs and premium materials that address known performance and reliability issues encountered in certain applications.

Wells’ complete line of components is featured in the company’s electronic catalog available at www.wellsVE.com.
